Je veux cette!*


(dying to wear this in Paris)

So, I just planned an impromptu trip to Paris in March. I live in Cincinnati, in the middle of the US, so this trip is more than thrilling for me. Et pourquoi? Parce que je veux rendre visite á mon petite ami en Paris. (And why? Because I want to visit my boyfriend in Paris.) Devastatingly romantic, I know. In fact, I am learning French for this man. We met when he studied abroad here in the US in the Fall. Ever since then, we have been able to talk occasionally on Skype and write letters, but I really cannot wait to see him again (and so soon!)

But honestly, I don’t really have anything to wear (and sadly all my money is paying for this plane ticket… agh!) Also, the stores here in Cincinnati do not offer the clothes I adore. I love Zara, Mango, Topshop, H&M, but these stores can’t be found in the Midwest! So I am just obsessing over this outfit. I am a huge fan of stripes, black and white contrast, and heels– could this be any more perfect? I don’t think so. I could explain exactly why I am in love with every single piece, but that may get tedious. I can only hope that I will win this outfit and be able to wear it out in Paris, avec mon chouchou. It would be…. parfait. And I can’t help it… my hopes are high.
